How was you weekend? I hope you did something nice and that the weather didn't interfere with your plans too much. We had a lovely time at the party to celebrate the 70th Wedding Anniversary of my parents in-law. It is a fantastic achievement and it was lovely for them to be surrounded by their family and friends. The actual anniversary is on Wednesday and I will share the card I made for them then.
I have made a start on my Easter cards. Usually I start them a bit sooner than this. I think because the weather has been so dull I just haven't thought about it.
When I make card with apertures I am left with all the inners of the circles (in this case). Well being me they all match and they are too good to not put on a card. I have also found that I can use the Double Pierced Square dies to make mats that completely cover my card blank.
So in the middle of the circle I added a mat of the backing paper I had chosen. To this I added die cuts of the Spring Daffodils by Creative Expressions. The bow is one from Crafter's Companion.
The sentiment came from a different die set from Creative Expressions.
This is definitely a one off I won't be making another card like this one. I do like using up the left over bits from other cards. I now have the artwork for the wedding invitations I am making for a nephew and his fiancee so I can begin work on those soon.
I would like to enter challenge 2 at the Crafter's Castle Challenge blog and Challenge 319 at Pixie's Snippets Playground.
Have a great week.
